Ripon Flood Alleviation Scheme Part 2

So the Ripon Flood Alleviation Scheme is now well under way.

Piping

Theres 2 of those black pipes laid side by side next to the Water Rat Pub. The piping goes quite far up the river as far as i can see, i imagine these will have flood gates on which will open in the times of need ie flooding.  This should help dramaticly as the river bed isnt that deep here and those pipes will allow hundreds of thousands of gallons through.
